S229H 3L27 88 2B01
=================================================
The S229H is the reference # we would use at the dealership to determine which setup you had and as stated above, the 3L27 shows it's a 3.27 L/S, 88 is of course 8.8, and the 2B01 I'm not sure of to be honest with you, possibly a date code or somethin.......

Any pics?

Is the stang rearend narrower than a Ranger or Explorer?

Is it discs?

THANKS!
